Abstract : Short-term memory as exhibited in a variety of experimental paradigms is heavily influenced by variations in the time allotted for rehearsal, in the time allotted for rehearsal-preventing interfering activity, and in the interval separating successive presentations of an item. The dissertation was designed to investigate systematically any interactions among rehearsal, interference, and spacing of practice in an effort to derive constraints on an adequate theory of short-term memory beyond those imposed by prior research.
